Default help with ackerman settings

hi,
what are the effects of moving the ballstud on the steering plate; further forward, or further rearward?
i understand how this affects the ackerman of the wheels when steering, but what effects does this have on the handling of the car; cornerspeed, steering etc

thanks

stew

The farther forward you go on the plate gives more turn in steering while giving up some on power steering. further back gives more on power steering while giving up some turn in.

Sleighty.

Go for the TIR ones as Pops said.

Their new WORLDS drive shafts are brilliant.I have a set on the CGM which has run a whole season and now have a set on the BD.

They are made in England so you shouldn't have a problem.

The only problem I ran into with the Ti racing prototypes is the color, red just doesn't match my BD

J/K look on the Schumacher web site under the Ti Products. My understanding is the red proto types are a little different besides the red. They have the Worlds type listed there.

The production TIR CVD's are a blue color. The dogbone is near enough the same as Yokomo blue and the axel is a pale is colour. I'll get one out my car and take a pic for people.

I don't know if they will fit the Rayspeed axles, most likely not.
